not just another Jew in comedy



About me

Rebecca Caplan is a comedy writer living in Brooklyn, NY with all the other comedy writers. Previously, she has studied at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and is currently a staff writer for CollegeHumor. Rebecca was also the director and writer of the short film Show Off. If you like podcasts, which you definitely do, you can listen to her on Caught in The Web, where she is a frequent guest. If you read magazines, which you definitely do if you’re at the airport or dentist, you can find her contributions to the Shouts & Murmurs section of The New Yorker. She went to Ithaca College, oft referred to as the "Cornell" of upstate New York.

psst! Check out my new short film for The New Yorker starring Crazy Ex Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom!
